The Beginning
Как все начиналось?
Эта история берет своё начало задолго до первой тренировки в Structura.
Переместимся на 10 лет назад, когда у меня развилось расстройство пищевого поведения и образа тела. Подростковый возраст плюс тревожность - и вот ты настойчиво ищешь изъяны в себе и способы от них избавиться.
Тогда набирали популярность фитнес-марафоны, и издеваться над собой можно было под благовидным предлогом.
Конечно, тогда я и сама была уверена, что отрабатывать неправильную еду в тренажёрном зале - это про здоровье и заботу о себе.
Все так говорили.
А боль в пояснице - неотъемлемая часть эффективной тренировки, привыкай.

No pain, no gain, как говорится.
И прогибчик посильнее!
Пару лет удавалось жить на качелях «похудение/набор», ещё хватало энтузиазма придумывать все новые и новые способы довести своего тело до идеального, поставив на заставку фотографию чужого пресса, чтобы наконец начать жить жизнь своей мечты.

Хотелось бы сказать, что восторжествовал здравый смысл, но увы, только 10 набранных килограммов сподвигли меня на мысль:
Точно ли страдать, ненавидеть и издеваться над собой, лишать всякого удовольствия (кроме творога с бананом), мучиться на тренировках, от которых тошнит и ломит тело, - путь к красоте? К жизни мечты? К гармонии? Это же нелогично.

Я начала искать ответы. И нашла.

Я прекратила лишать себя и наказывать своё тело за то, что оно выглядит не так, как у девушки из инстаграма.

Стала учиться слушать и слышать его сигналы, это теперь я знаю о сенсорных системах, их анализе мозгом и выдаче реакций, а тогда казалось, что голоса в соц.сетях и блогах лучше знают, как мне стать идеальной (читай - довольной, счастливой).

THE VISION ARRIVES

First Acknowledgement
Suede make it to the magazine cover
It was this issue of the Select magazine that stated that Britpop is a thing. It featured Suede, The Auteurs, Denim, Saint Etienne, and Pulp. No Blur and no Oasis yet.
Suede were one of the first bands to establish themselves in this new genre. They set the guidelines for everyone to follow. As the journalist John Harris wrote, "If Britpop started anywhere, it was the deluge of acclaim that greeted Suede's first records: all of them audacious, successful and very, very British"

Young British Artists
Damien Hirst gets Turner prize for a divided cow
The similar go-get-'em moods dominate the art scene. Young British Artists, led by Damien Hirst, are making art as outrageous as possible. In 1995, Hirst himself gets the Turner Prize (the most prestigious prize in Fine Arts) for "Mother and Child (Divided)" - the installation consisting of a cow and a calf, divided in halves and put in tanks of formaldehyde.

COMMON PEOPLE

1996
The Anthem on Air
She came from Greece, she had a thirst for knowledge
The song Common People released by Pulp in 1996 is voted a Britpop anthem. In a 2012 question and answer session on BBC Radio 5 Live Cocker said that he was having a conversation with the girl at the bar at [Central Saint Martins] college because he was attracted to her, although he found some aspects of her personality unpleasant. He remembered that at one point she had told him she "wanted to move to Hackney and live like 'the common people"
